    A nice long centre vent looks cool, but the jacket has to be well waisted, and the back flaring out somewhat to get the silhouette looking right, and this can only be achieved if you have the body shape,
    When we was Teenagers this was not a problem, :)

    That's weird, because we saw a heck of a lot of Manchester lads in Blackpool in '67, and we made trips to the Wheel, and they seem to have been as far into vents as we were.

    Maybe '67 and more mod-based, but my era, '69 on... definitely just the single.

    I even remember what a bugger it was to get a blazer with just a single... ended up having to go to Edinburgh and buy one from a shop off Princess Street. (I'd forgotten that.) :nodding:

    Also just remembered that I used to buy OTP suits from Justins - Market Centre (Manchester) - and even here: http://www.stone-dri.com/about/

    usually evaprest and the like. Decent macs, too - and various bits and pieces.

    Stone-dri was an odd one, it was sort of 'old' gear, but stocked a fair bit of good skinhead clobber like Harringtons and DMs and 'Crombies'..

    Just googled the name, and there it was.

    As an aside, does anyone remember the 'loafers' Timpsons sold - or even better... have a pic of them?

    I recall they had a sort of buckle... or it could be the dementia kicking in...............:paranoia:

    Roy what is that tie pin you've got for your hanky?

    gotta say the one detail I always apreciate about your photos is that you're one of the few english gents (at least in pics I see) that uses a real hankie in his breast pocket, as opposed to the carded kind which I always thought was akin to wearing a clip on tie.

    and generally speaking I also prefer a more traditional suit, with the single ticket pocket.

    As youngsters, we used to study this video of The Beatles singing 'Hey Jude' on The David Frost Show in 1968 - solely for the crowd of kids that invaded the stage. This lad stood out......we should have got out a bit more :D
